The curing of an epoxy consisting of the solid hardener dicyandiamide (DICY) and the resin diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A (DGEBA) is studied in a system consisting of a tablet of DICY embedded in liquid DGEBA. Dissolution of DICY within the liquid DGEBA in combination with the transport of dissolved DICY from the tablet border into DGEBA and the chemical reaction of both reactants is studied by scanning Brillouin microscopy and infrared spectroscopy. Scanning Brillouin microscopy demonstrates the spatial and temporal evolution of the static and dynamic hypersonic properties in the course of curing in the vicinity of the DICY tablet. Infrared spectroscopy performed on epoxy pieces extracted from the final sample at different distances from the tablet surface give information about the spatial evolution of the curing process. The results achieved by both techniques are finally combined to yield a better understanding of the curing of DICY-based epoxies, which transform upon curing from strongly heterogeneous systems towards increasingly homogeneous systems.

Static and dynamic hypersonic properties are probed to reveal the subtle interplay between demixing, matter transport, chemical network formation, polymer network swelling, and network damage in the vicinity of the interface between the reactants of amine-curing epoxies. An innovative time- and space-resolved acoustic microscopy, called scanning Brillouin microscopy, gives access to these competing transport and structure formation processes in epoxy systems consisting of either pure resin, alumina nanoparticles-filled resin, or various epoxy resin-hardener mixtures topped by a layer of pure hardener.
